Taylor Ramsey is a multidisciplinary studio artist known for her mixed-media paintings and illustrations. She is a BFA graduate from Sam Houston State University, where she majored in studio art and animation.
Ramsey describes her work as an “undeniably black, nonsensical paradise”, that highlights her portraiture through the culmination of melanated figures, layered patterns, haute couture, and fantastical ideas.
I explore storytelling through portraiture. My work focuses on a fantastical view of blackness mainly depicting melanated figures and various cultural southern references. My paintings utilize vibrant colors, with an emphasis on patterns, fashion, and fantasy that brings character identity to the forefront of my work.
